I've known about Ghost for a long time, never really cared for them

How can you get better than creepy?

I'm looking to upgrade from a Dual table I bought to either a Rega RP6 or the new Clearaudio Wood, both with MM carts. Anyone have a suggestion on which would be best?

I should clarify that the Clearaudio is the Concept Wood.

I'm not sure that they still make them, but a used one would obviously be fine. I use one to isolate my CATV power from the rest of my system with good results.

Thanks. I've tried looking around for the Humbuster you mentionned. No luck. Is there anything else, in production, you could recommend ? Preferably available in Europe ?

 

Would something like this be adequate : http://www.furmansound.com/product.php?div=03&id=M-10xE ?

I am, alas, woefully ignorant of electricity matters. I have no idea whether I live close to a powerline or not, and don't know how I could find this out either.

 

Likewise, I don't know if my amp is properly grounded or not. I only know that its cord has a ground slot and that my surge protector has a ground plug that fits into it.

 

While I do get some electronic noise and parasites when using the DAC at very high volume (not playing music), I haven't had the TT hum problem shown on video with it.

Unfortunately I have no experience with that product so I have no way to know whether it would help you or not.

I would advise buying from a local shop that allows returns.
